Zero F #08 — Brand New Tats

February 24th, 2012

 

Well, at least it’s not a tramp stamp.

Impressions:

If not for the boob jokes and Tifa confessing to/kissing Saito, this could almost be mistaken for a recent Shana episode. A bunch of random side characters who didn’t exist two episodes ago and show no sign of being relevant two episodes from now either standing around talking at the main characters. At length. Then the deus ex kicked in to bring an end to this arc and Louis somehow opened a portal to Saito to let them escape where he had to explain his new ink to the rest of his harem.

Cut out the elven exposition and padding, and this episode would’ve been about 5 minutes long. The ‘best’ bit of padding went something like, "Here they come! Get ready to fire! There they go! We didn’t fire!" I’m not sure the story could’ve survived without that thrilling exchange. And then a bunch of children in what was essentially an air yacht defeated an entire squad of elven dragon knights. Well, I suppose it was to be expected. Elven magic apparently heavily relies on making badly rendered CG things float around. Because it’s really hard to draw bricks… and vines.

Didn’t this show have assassins at one point? Like… last episode? What ever happened to them? Actually, come to think of it, are they still unconscious on the lawn back there?

Preview:

Tifa and Saito play Find the Saltine.

6 Shouts From the Peanut Gallery

    Oh god this show is getting worse and worse each episode. Which is worse Aroduc? This or Princess no Rondo whatever.

  • AGear2Ax says:

    Wait a minute… In middle of all that… Did something significant happen? They are bringing back that thing about, the four or five? I don’t remember that… Well about those especials Familiars related with the Void-type Magic? You know the righ hand, the left hand, the bra– You know? Forget it, I don’t it even matters now… or it will be relevant now…

  • Wilfriback says:

    Princes no Rondo is worse, this is between Futatsu no Kishi and 1st season.

  • ZakuAbumi says:

    So, what exactly happened to Hellsing Ultimate? Don’t tell me you dropped the ball at this stage when things finally get going.

  • Aroduc says:

    I mostly just stopped caring. There’s far too long between episodes, the last one I really enjoyed was I think in 2009, and every single fight is more or less the same thing. Plus, it was days late to show up, and then when it did, it took me two days to get through it. The awful end to the Alexander fight didn’t help either (or taking ten minutes to get to it, along with some good old fashioned sodomy, didn’t help either). The Walter fight at the end was quite good, but then it ruined that by following it and ending the episode with a few straight minutes of stills.

    Rather watch Nisemonogatari 8 again than watching this bland show, best brushteeth scene ever o.0
